Reviewing their new album ‘The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons’, NME awarded the record four stars, describing the Swedes’ first LP in a decade as “fun, youthful and very cut”.
He added: “After spending 11 years away from the studio, The Hives went straight back to the only method they know: pure pandemonium. It’s time for the new generations this healthy dose of Hives get old school, packed with the same intensity, silliness and of course the matching black and white suits.”
Speaking to NME recently, singer Pelle Almqvist described the album as “fucking stupid and childish”.
“The punk songs on this album are almost worse than our first record. ‘The Bomb’ and ‘Trapdoor Solution’ are almost like we’ve hit a ceiling,” continued Almqvist.
Elsewhere in the interview, The Hives discussed the indie era and reflected on opening for Arctic Monkeys on their UK and Ireland tour this summer.
